Endurance eRacing World Championship – Le Mans 2020 – HyperCar Podium

Last and at the very top: The king-class!

The fastest and the hardest to set up. So hard and troublesome that only six teams even dared to give it a shot, and only five of them made it to the finish line.

With excellence and a steady pace, PINSIM Drillers Esports made it to the finish line nine laps ahead of Seawolf NetRace Motorsport. For the first hours of the race it looked like it would be a lasting battle between the two, and season winners Viadukten wouldn’t even have a chance at a podium finish. But with experience, steady pace and some guidance from danish motorsport grand-old-man Thorkild Thyrring, Viadukten steadily advanced and left the competitors well behind to end up on the third step of the podium.

Congratulations to all our HyperCar podium finishers!

About The Author

Peter Munkholm
When John Nielsen won Le Mans 24-Hours in 1990, Peter was hooked with motorsports. He started sim racing on his uncles PC with Formula One Grand Prix by Geoff Crammond in 1992. Then progressed through IndyCar Simulator and IndyCar Simulator 2 on his Amiga 500+. When he bought his own PC in 1994 and a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Joystick he was already deeply in love with sim racing. His first skirmish with light modding was a Pernod Anis blue, white, and red skin for IndyCar Racing 2. He was hooked! But sim racing really kicked off for Peter with Sports Car GT in 1999. And with internet access and what felt like an ocean of mods. Sports Car GT and the F1 simulators with endurance racing mods swallowed most of his spare time. Then the GTR mod for F1 2003 arrived on the scene, from some Swedish dudes who called themselves SIMBIN. That would change everything! Right about then was also when Logitech steering wheels reach a state of useful. So when the GTR game officially released Peter bought a Formula Force GP wheel the same day, went home and founded the Danish Grand Touring League (DGTL). In 2006 the first LAN event was held. This became GTR24H in 2007. As they say. The rest is history!
